The self-same thing has been said of A/V companies, particularly of Symantec [Norton], who are regarded as the MS of A/V companies.
Whether any of this is true or not, I have no idea. It would be hard to prove, because no-one seems to have turned up any proof yet.
Microsoft has re-focussed on security this year, & all those who have tried the beta of XP's Service Pack 2, have agreed this is indeed the case. For
example, SP2 will improve XP's built-in firewall.
Over 90% of the world's computers run on a Windows operating system. so it's more targeted by virus writers.
There, I've played devil's advocate on this. That's not to say that I'm a fan of either MS or Windows!
